Hi, folks,

I hope you all had a good weekend. We managed to get a few things done, which is always good in the recently moved. Earlier I think the fact that this house is ugly was admitted to, but it also has some weird attributes. Like, it has no front yard. At all. It has no garage, either. Instead of those normal features it has five exterior doors. Except only three are functional. Two have been permanently sealed up, but not removed. One is in the room with all the cat beds, food and toys; as far as it seems possible to deduce, so far it doesn't bother them at all. The second is in the dining room and would lead to the back yard if it worked. So, when we got here we had the movers do this:

The cabinet and hutch is in front of the door. It doesn't block it entirely, but works well enough. It's hard to think of another solution as a renter who can't make structural changes. There is another interior door that has a big bookcase in front of it to conceal an unnecessary second door that would otherwise open straight to a toilet in the room entered by the front door, not exactly the route to charm! As you can see, the dining room is still home to some boxes, odds and ends and other items waiting on a permanent home. I'll keep you posted as progress is made. 

Have a good one!

The cabinet and hutch look like the perfect solution for concealing that no-longer-functional door! I like the way you have it decorated, too.
